Area of Specialization – Adult Clinical Psychology
Research Advisor/Mentor – Dr. Norah Feeny
Research Interests – I am interested in understanding the mechanisms of change across evidence based treatments for PTSD in order to identify and study moderators of treatment efficacy and predictors of treatment outcome. I also have an interest in the dissemination and implementation of empirically supported treatments into community settings.
